If you would like to find out how Homeopathy could be of help to you please just get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.
So what is Homeopathy ?
Homeopathy is a system of complementary, energetic medicine. The word Homeopathy comes from two Greek words, “homoios” and “pathos” meaning “similar suffering.” One of the fundamental Homeopathic principles is “Like cures like” or the Law of Similars. This idea dates back to Hippocrates (c 460 – 370 BC) and was used in Ancient Eygyptian and Greek medicine.
It means if a substance can make you ill in large, material amounts then smaller, specially prepared doses, can help you get well by stimulating your self-healing abilities.
- Coffee is a stimulant and can make us more energised, buzzing and stay awake longer. It can also cause insomnia by making us over-excited and wound up. Homeopathically prepared Coffea is one remedy we could use for sleep problems.
- Cutting onions can cause your eyes to stream with watery tears and your nose to feel raw with a burning discharge. You may find it difficult to think or concentrate well – like having a bad cold or some kinds of hay fever. Allium – cepa, or Red Onion, is a remedy that might help you with those symptoms.
Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician (1755 – 1843), created the system of medicine we call Homeopathy.
As a doctor he was shocked by the harshness of many medical treatments, so he looked at ways to reduce toxic and damaging side effects. He observed that some drugs had similar symptoms to the illnesses they were used to treat. This intrigued Hahnemann. So he began to experiment on himself and with students, testing increasingly diluted medicines and observing the effects on healthy volunteers.
The more he reduced and diluted the substances, the more effective the medicines became. He continued to test, observe and document his research.
These scientific findings and experiences became the foundations of Homeopathy’s philosophy and practice. So Homeopathy has over two hundred years of observation, exploration and clinical experience.
Millions of people worldwide now use Homeopathy.
There are thousands of Homeopathic remedies, made from a huge range of sources in nature and the world around us, including many different plants, minerals and elements. Remedies carry the pattern of the source substance as well as different levels of energy or potency. Each remedy is prescribed depending on what is most appropriate for you.
How will it benefit me and my baby/children ?
Many of us look for holistic and different ways to support our health and well-being when pregnant or have a new baby, and we want safe, non-toxic holistic solutions.
There are many so-called “minor” complaints of pregnancy which we don’t need to just get on with – like heartburn, nausea, ligament and pelvic pain as well as anxieties, fears and uncertainties.
What these symptoms are like for you important, what these are and what makes you feel better or worse are clues to which remedy might help you.
We can explore other support and tools to have available during your labour and for immediately post-birth.
After birth, remedies can aid your normal physical healing, or are helpful for emotional and physical support after more difficult birth experiences, for both ourselves and our babies.
For pregnancy, the post-natal weeks, any breastfeeding problems, unsettled “colicky” babies, teething or sleepless babies, you could try homeopathy.
Or even help with conditions like diarrhoea, digestive problems, ear infections, respiratory tract infections and eczema.

People consult a homoeopath for so many reasons, from a general sense that they could feel better and have more energy, through acute illnesses, or for help with more deep seated and limiting health challenges.

Homoeopathy can be used alongside any treatment and advice you may choose to receive from medical or other complementary practitioners.
What to expect at a consultation
Due to the current viral situation and Covid-19, I am offering consultations for both current clients and initial appointments for new people online and also by phone for anyone who already works with me.
For any current clients, you are welcome to have a free 15 minute check-in (online appointment). For any remedies sent out there will be a charge for those and postage.
New to Homeopathy ? I can offer an introductory meeting, you can find out more about how I work or you can simply book in for an appointment.
Shorter, acute consultations online available for both new and existing clients.
What happens in a consultation?
We’ll talk about what you would like help with, for you or your baby or child. I might ask about your medical history, lifestyle and the things which bother you, any physical symptoms you have, how you are in yourself, what concerns you, any stresses and worries you have.
I am happy to help with pre-conception, menstrual issues, pregnancy and post-natally. Also we can look at ways to move towards a healthier lifestyle – pregnancy related or not, acute or long term health concerns, emotional and mental wellbeing, huge life changes and transitions, stress and a wealth of other concerns.
Please just get in touch. I’d love to talk with you.
I have used Homeopathy personally since the age of 18, through all my pregnancies and with my three children, all of whom are now adults. Homeopathy has been invaluable in supporting the health and well-being of myself and my family.
I finished a 4 year training course in Homeopathy in 1998 and since then have continued learning through study, seminars, courses, professional supervision and Continuing Professional Development.
